Borehamwood Ratha-yatra One Saturday each year, the community of Borehamwood, not far from Bhaktivedanta Manor, has a parade about two hours long in which the devotees, headed by Parasurama Prabhu, have a cart bearing Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai. Devotee kids dressed as peacocks this year. One motorized vehicle pulling the cart was decorated like an elephant. One devotee played a full drum set on another vehicle. Govinda Prabhu was there to play accordion and sing. One young lady named Debra, who has some attraction to the Hare Krishna devotees and who likes their festivals, took some video of our procession. She travels different places with her teddy bear, Bearsac, and shares her experiences.

apesar de todas as diferenças, a pessoa mais diferente de todas teve que ser a Debra. A Debra andava de um lado para o outro com um urso de peluche tipo mochila até que o Australiano lhe perguntou o porquê disso. Ela então lá nos explicou sobre o bearsac. Ora o Bersac é o nome do urso de peluche que ela tinha com ela que, segundo a mesma, vai fazer 13 anos no próximo mês que ela o tem. Toda entusiasmada a contar-nos sobre o bearsac, ela aponta para o cinto que ela trazia com ela e carregou num botão junto ao cinto para vermos aparecer em letras neon na zona da fivela do cinto, a passar o seguinte endereço de website: www.bearsac.com. Depois lá nos explicou que também escreveu um livro sobre o bearsac e costuma vende-lo no metro de Londres. Além disso, sempre que vai viajar para alguma lado tira fotos de pessoas com o bearsac e coloca-as depois no site. Ao ver o site apercebi-me que a Debra tem o Sindroma de Asperger (está explicado o que é no site).

Today we went to the Trocadero and bumped into a load of Bleach and Hetalia cosplayers. And they weren't even together. But apparently, according to some guy who was being crazy awesome on DDR, cosplayers often congregate there on the weekends. YAYE!!! Now we have future weekend plans. :D BUT!!! The most AWESOME thing that happened today was meeting with Bearsac. It was awesome. We high-fived him and talked to him about his travels and his awesome purple robe. He was pretty fucking cool... for a teddy bear. And he's totally famous!! He's BFF with a load of celebrities and everything. LOOK!!!! Tags: awesome, bearsac, cosplay, omg, random, rl, yaye

16-Apr-2010 - 11:42:am Berni --- Boooo! I was hoping for an actual bear.
16-Apr-2010 - 11:49:am Juicy, Jew Sea --- Does she just sit in the station?! or do you just see her also getting a train?!!
16-Apr-2010 - 11:55:am Fash FC Goon --- I worry about silly things. I've looked at her photos and think to myself. She'd be devastated if something happened to the bear. She obviously loves the bear. and Walking around in public or travelling around the world with it is asking for trouble. Not even making a joke about it. I worry about stupid things at times.
16-Apr-2010 - 11:56:am Luis Anaconda --- She gets on the train - I assume she goes somewhere. Quite often at the same time as me so it's unlikely she has a proper job.

On Tuesday I went to see Gary Numan at Scala, a small warmup gig for his upcoming (hopefully not all cancelled) US tour dates. The set was fiercely energetic from the get go, with rich guitar and synth riffs fueling the performance. Admittedly, I was not very familiar with Numan's catalogue before the show, but I have a great deal of respect for his music by the scope of musician's influenced by him (ranging from Jack White and Nine Inch Nails, to Jarvis Cocker and GZA of Wu-Tang Clan). Gary Numan's show proved to me that knowing the songs before hand is not always crucial. The crowd was into the lively performance, as many hair-dyed heads and glow-sticks bobbed along through the show (there was even a woman in the front puppeteering her teddy bear along with the music). http://www.marchingwithsix.com/

The Revolution Is Only One Train Stop Away
On 11 February, Debra Schiman (I didn’t know her name but she’s a fairly familiar figure to travellers going in to London from St Albans because she’s generally carrying a teddy bear and promoting her book – Travels With My Teddy Bear – to more or less anyone who’ll listen) refused to get off a train when they announced that because of congestion they were cancelling her train and turning it around. Just one woman saying no.

December 2009 I know it is not a gossip but am now on the Internet Movie Database IMDb http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1542390/ LOL!

5th November, 2009. 11:29 am Tubes and Books The Northern Line can be an interesting place and today was no different. It is my custom, after an initial perusal of the other inhabitants of my carriage, to clutch my rucksack like a shield and pretend to be asleep. I daresay that the body language is very revealing to them what know these things. Were I a little less broad in the beam, I would read a book, even on a crowded train, but I’m not and I really dislike either being jostled while I am reading, by people sitting next to me who have fewer qualms about spreading amoeba-like across seats, or sitting with my shoulders hunched and arms squeezed in so I can focus on the page. So unless the carriage is only sparsely populated, I pretend to be asleep. Sometimes there’s more pretence involved than others.

I do tend to listen, though, even if being consummately British, I do not engage my fellow passengers in conversation (It just ain’t done, don’tcha know?) and at the same time it saves me from having to be actively rude to the occasional beggar or busker that wanders down the carriage trying to scrounge money for his or her next fix.

This morning was a little different, however – not enough for me to overcome my natural reticence and moral cowardice, mind. My nutter alarm went off immediately I heard the voice and I hunkered down and pretended to be completely out of it. By the time I’d realised it was not the usual situation, I was, being, as I said, typically British, too involved with my pretence to risk the embarrassment of actually appearing to be awake and engage with the person.

What happened was this: a woman’s voice piped up quite clearly, but not excessively loud, saying hello to everyone in the carriage and introducing her teddy bear, Bearsac. I fancy that it was not unreasonable of my nutter alarm to blare at me.

Anyway, it turns out that she is an author of a book. She has Asperger’s Syndrome and is hawking her self-published book to raise the money to go travelling. Since she has Asperger’s, her twin passions – the teddy bear and travelling – have pretty much developed beyond obsession. It sounded quite interesting and she clearly copes with her condition rather better than I cope with my innate British embarrassment.

In an attempt to partially rebalance the scales (I didn’t talk to her), here is her website and information on the book: Her web site is here. Her name is Debra Schiman and her book is published by Pen Press and is available from Amazon.
Comment On 5th November 2009 13:52 (UTC), fencingsculptor commented: She sounds so interesting. I like to talk to these sorts of people. Just not on crowded trains. However this Lady is far more interesting than your average train bound begger. If I'm lucky enough to ever meet her I would like very much to hear about her and Bearsac's trip to China and Mongolia.
Comment On 5th November 2009 17:36 (UTC), romney commented: Thanks for this - have ordered the book.

11th September 2009
Back on the tube I sat in the same carriage as a lady called Debra and her teddy bear, she helped him wave at me as I got on the tube. She told everyone about their website, which shows where they had visited (you can see by their photos they really get about), their diary and information about Aspergers. I didn't look up while she was telling us all this as it was quite unexpected as it isn't usual for anyone to talk or make eye contact on the tube let alone acknowledge a waving teddy bear......

Bearsac
Debra has Asperger Syndrome, affecting her ability to interact socially with other people. She deals with her condition by projecting a personality into a talking teddy bear, called Bearsac, which she interacts with the world through.

Thursday I met bearsac One day I met a nice British lady accompanied by hear teddybear, or must I say, a teddybear accompanied by his very best friend. I did not have much time to talk to her but what I learned is that she is bonded so strongly to bearsac that she would not miss him a second. You could check on her Myspace account. http://www.myspace.com/241344773 She is also author of a teddybear travel book.

Coming back from work on the bus the other day I saw this buff chick standing with some random school kid next to her. While everyone was holding on to the bars on the bus this kid was just standing straight trying to style it in front of her. The next minute a car pulls out in front of the bus so the driver driver slammed the brakes on and then I just see this kid go flying head first into the plastic barricade-priceless!

Bearsac and Asperger's Syndrome

Bearsac is a talkative teddy rucksack who is assisting his owner Debra to make the public more aware of Asperger's syndrome in adults. He's the coolest dude teddy bear in the world and has his own website as well as a MySpace page. I received the following message from Bearsac the other day ...

Best thing you've seen on public transport

but strangely, something happenedd this evening about 10 minutes after i'd just left the house having just started this thread, a woman comes up to me while i wait for the tube and has a teddy in her hand and then introduces the teddy to me and a bemused couple sitting near us, telling us that he had been on lots of adventures around the world and a book was coming out about him and we should look at the
website which was www.bearsac.com honestly go on it and read all about Bearsac it's genuinely cool, he once appeared on the tweenies ! and to quote the website "He has also been on Big Brothers Little Brother twice, Big Brother Eviction twice, Ready Steady Cook in the audience and Sky Sports News.

A lady. A train. And a bondage bear.

There was a lady on my train this morning. Well actually, yes there were a lot of ladies. And alot of men. But there was this one particular lady who I'm going to focus on because the story is about her, so... ...the lady is holding a teddy bear. As it is I'm not a huge fan of stuffed animals, and stuffed bears are as welcome to my life as an audience with Nick Griffin (exceptions of course to Paddington Bear, he's alright.
I also like real bears, although they're not so cuddly. And they smell) And the bear, I notice, is wearing a little bear bondage kit. And for some reason, unbeknownst to myself or my fellow commuters, the lady is trying to involve all of us into interaction with said S&M bear.
A little like this:
Step 1) Attempt eye contact
Step 2) Wiggle bear's head
Step 3) Attempt eye contact again and so on.
Now I'm not a morning person on the best of days, and today
especially after my alarm didn't go off and I woke up in a panic, desperately trying to get out the door in time, I'm certainly not
radiating any Feel the Love energy at all. And surely there is something not quite right about anyone trying to make eye contact on the 9:50 Thameslink, surely there's some unspoken agreement between commuters - Please don't look at me, I'm reading the newspaper /my book / playing with my mobile / my hands / my shoelace ?! Then, the strangest thing. As the train pulls into Kings Cross, and she starts to
get up, she shoves the bear in my face. "check out my website!Bearsex.com*!" (*Or something along these lines, needless to say I haven't checked it out. I've been to Prowler, and I've seen those magazines) Then put the bear in my fellow commuter's face. "Check
out my website!" I don't know about you, but a strange lady's bear pressed into my face at that time is most offputting.

What's the strangest thing you've seen somebody do in London?

Bearsac (and Deborah – who’s actually quite cool if you talk to her) are awesome. I often get the same train as Besrsac in the morning – nice chap, recently had a baby bear. .........
Comment: Pato, Bearsac has a baby bear! That is so cool! I didn’t say she and her bear are not cool, I just found it odd she was talking through her bear. I thought it was fabulous. I rushed home and told my boyfriend who proceeded to be sceptical. That was years ago. And then a couple of months back he was on a tube on his way home from a match, and someone said “Hello Mr Football Man!” and there they were. Bear and lady, talking away at him. So he came home and sheepishly told me. Hee hee. Their website is awesome. :)

Have You Met Bearsac?

I had the pleasure of meeting bearsac last week at Elephant & Castle:"Bearsac is a Teddy Bear rucksack. He was bought on 26th August 1997 whilst his owner was in Belgium. She could not resist his expressive face. She, (Debra) breathed life into him. The moment their eyes met Bearsac was. At last he had found his Medium; his instrument of communication. For although Bearsac has a voice, he has no mouth to articulate it. As well as being his new friend and owner, Debra is his medium. How it works is his voice leaves his body then his aura - which is an energy field around the body - goes
through the earth's energy field, is then absorbed by Debra's aura before going into her voice-box and out of her mouth."
Has anyone else met him/her/it on the underground? PS: Debra has Asperger's syndrome. "Although mild and high functioning it still gives her difficulties in some situations and may lead people to feel offeneded if they don't understand"......
Comment:May 23, 2006 6:24 am It is so weird that I have recently
joined here and I read a recently posted thread on Bearsac. I have not met him but have heard of him from 2 of my colleagues who have. One of the colleagues posted everyone a link to his website and a photo they had taken of him at Vauxhall station eating someones sandwich!! I have been a fan ever since and hope one day that I will meet him so I can be photographed with him to be on his Bearsac meets public page. I used to have him as my wallpaper on my PC at work but now have my newborn nephew Luke on there. I love his problem page for teddy bears, and the photos of him with celebrities. Any Gooners amongst
you really must see the celebrities page. Anyone that has not yet seen his website’ it is a must see.

If You Go Down To The Tube Today

There I was staring at the Independent on the District Line this lunchtime when I heard this slightly high-pitched voice coming from a seat nearby. “Can I have a sip of your cappuccino?” said the voice.
“No, you might burn yourself” said a man’s voice. I looked round to see small brown bear wearing a red hat who was now asking another man next to him for a sip of his water! Some fellow tube passengers didn’t know where to look. Some moved slowly away, others hid behind their books or pretended to read the adverts again. Turns out this wasn’t just any bear. This was Bearsac who has his very own website at
bearsac.com where you visit his house and check out his photo album. He’s travelled extensively and also seems to have spent quite a lot of time hanging around Borehamwood as he’s been photographed with virtually the entire cast of Eastenders. Not to mention quite a few members of the Arsenal squad including Thierry Henry and Robert
Pires. If you’re a Numanoid there’s a treat in store (click on the picture hanging on the wall in the house). And if you’re feeling a little peckish there are a few recipes to try out in the kitchen. Bearsac is not politically affiliated (I did ask). And just to double-check I asked whether he was backing Cameron or Davis but he just gave me a “do I really look that stupid?” look. Random tube journey. Ambient
serendipity. Filed under London, Made me laugh.

With my camera flashing away I was targeted by a woman carrying a small toy bear dressed as Nadia. Bearsac - Nadia looky-likey and celebrity teddy! It had an uncanny look of Nadia with false boobs and bad hair (sorry I was a Jason fan until he came out) and I was told that this was a celebrity in the bear world with its own Website. This was a fine example of the calibre of super fans on offer, obsessive, passionate and suffering from mild sun stroke.

We live in Borehamwood and we love Bearsac so we think it is so cool that he is on this site. We were in the Tesco car park when we saw him being photographed and we asked Debra what the photo was for which is how we got to this site. We think Bearsac was a great Nadia lookalike even if he is a teddy bear!

Stupid deluded woman, with a stupid toy bear intruding on people's journeys on public transport, bombarding them with rubbish and publicly embarrasing them. Its the last thing you need, after a stressful day at work.She is irritating and moronic. Of course, its trendy to entertain mentally ill or badly behaved people by giving them a label such as "Aspergers" to somehow validate and normalise their
behaviour.

Madness or Genius?

There is a woman who gets off at my train stop at Kentish Town almost every day who has a bear rucksack that talks to people. The woman seems very shy and retiring but the bear has a funny high pitched voice and insists on making conversation with hapless commuters. Most of them ignore her but occasionally you can see people talking back to this rucksack. It's very funny and 'bear woman' is a topic of conversation among everyone who has seen her or been cornered by the bear. Now she has a website - it is still under construction but it is worth a look. She was my train this morning - the bear was telling everybody it was going to be famous.

Bearsac's owner is called Debra, I wouldn't call her shy at all. She has Asperger's syndrome which she talks of on the website. I overheard another passenger on the train say that she is writing a book about her traveling with bearsac.
